I once had a very good teacher who taught me something very important.

"News is reported in the following way. Half of it is true with a fair amount of salt. The rest is just the personal opinion of the reporter."

It's probably because of him that I never react to news stories. I read exactly what it says and ONLY what it says nothing more.

I see plenty of people react exactly how the reporter wanted them to react when he/she wrote the article be it anger, or whatever, usually anger though. It makes me laugh at just how easily people react to news stories and articles.

My advise do NOT react to a news article with any emotion until you get the whole story. Half the time you don't. It seems silly to me to get all upset about something when you don't know the whole story, dont you?
